At long last the true cause of corruption in Ghana has finally been found. A report by the institute of economic affairs (IEA) has attributed corruption of any kind to these top three factors: greed, the urge to get rich quick and low salaries.
Senior adjunct fellow of the IEA, Professor Atsu Aryee reveals that 90% of Ghanaians believe there is corruption in Ghana as they also believe the "need" to pay bribes to get jobs, avoid official payments or receive a preferential treatment at the hospital.
The bane of corruption according to Professor Atsu Aryee, can only end if parliament passes the right to information bill.
“The crusade against corruption will actually go into high gear if we make information available… we need to get that [the RTI bill]. If we get that, it will be easier for us even to question about how do they get money? How do they build a house, etc?”
